late season unit 34 elk

I got a license too. In Dec. the bulls will be grouped together, w/ a lone bull possibility. It's also a new moon, which won't hurt. The weather will be a factor for good or for worse. Need to find the bulls, find their trail and stake yourself where you can get a shot. Stay warm w/ multiple thin layers. Best wishes for you, too.
